Good evening everyone how are you all today?  Fine I hope.
Bank holiday monday has turned out to be a bit of washout hasn't it?  Although it was fine this morning so our briard Enya managed to get two walks in.  I went to our local garden centre which has a Hobbycraft, it also has a lovely field which Enya adores as she is allowed to run free and tease a couple of springer spaniels who live across the stream.  She will stand looking at them and just wind them up a treat then calmly walk off as though butter wouldn't melt - little madam.  She never barks at them, mind you they do enough of that - hee hee.
Well today's card was made specifically to order, which I do quite abit of.  Yes her name was Jenny, it was a special birthday and Jenny had taken up growing her own vegetables so the Flippin' Women stamp was ideal.
The card is an 8x8, pearlised pastel green card followed by some pink patterned paper which was printed out from one of the Jo Sheen cd's but I can't remember which one.  I then stamped and embossed the name from an alphabet by Dimension Stamps, a beautiful alphabet with is very versatile.  As you can see I used the backing paper for that.  Once those were cut out I placed them onto some more pearlised green card.  The image is stamped and embossed onto watercoloured card.
I coloured this in with whisper watercoloured pens.  Die cut it with a spellbinders die and then made a faux nestie with the pearlised green card.  The corners are die cut with a marianne die.
I know the recipient was thrilled to bits with her card and apparently it stayed on her mantle piece way longer than all the other cards so I was pleased with that.
Hope you like it as much as Jenny did.  Thank you for stopping by.  Take care and see you all tomorrow.
